Larger events that occurred across north and central Georgia this past August can be found here.

 

Aug 9th NE Georgia

Aug 9th: Diurnal convection became a little more organized in areas of NE Georgia has the sea breeze interacted with some down slope winds from the Georgia Mountains. A few instances of damaging winds caused some tree damage, mostly across portions of White county. 

 

 

Aug 19-20th SE Georgia

Aug 19th: A weak baroclinic zone across the region with a weak low pressure center located on the Atlantic coast created an isolated corridor of enhanced low-level shear. Diurnally driven storms were able to tap into that corridor to form a few multicell cold pool driven clusters that caused a number of locally damaging wind gusts in the subsequent microbursts. 

 

 

The September climate outlook is below.
